Fall 2021 Graduate Student Orientation Scheduled for August 19-20

Welcome to Kent State University!

Graduate Student Orientation (GSO) is held prior to the start of fall and spring semesters for all new graduate students. 

GSO provides an opportunity to learn about university resources and network with other new graduate students, along with representatives of KSU's faculty, staff, and administration.

Fall 2021 GSO is scheduled for Thursday, August 19 for all new graduate students and Friday, August 20 for all new teaching assistants. New teaching assistants who are also new graduate students are required to attend both days. Both programs are scheduled for 12-5pm and a detailed schedule for GSO will be available in late July.

Registration for Fall 2021 GSO is now open and admitted students will receive an invitation via email. The GSO program is anticipated to be held in person for Fall 2021 with some virtual options available. Please note details are subject to change due to Covid-19 protocols.
